It’s a work in progress but everything should work now

 

Trying to get back to normal…such as we can under lockdown.

We were getting along fairly well under a 'reduced travel' order, until we saw COVID-19 leap over the Cascades, and until the highway and streets departments, asked about any decline in traffic, told the governor no, it's not working. So thanks to people who thought...

Frantic month…

We've opted out of our usual St. Paddy's day fest with the pipers and all---regretfully. But while the virus isn't out in town,it is in town, and we've just decided the tightly packed pub crowd in that evening is not wise for people of _ahem) - our age. Hope you all...

Sorry about the long silence. Re-hi!

Been scrambling like mad with writing, playing catchup with same and trying to make deadline. Been a little behind in communications, but gaining on it.

We had a glitch with the Audible version of Resurgence….

On its way to a fix, I hope. I tried to sign the contract, had an electronic glitch with the process, got sick in early December, and my agent had a family loss, and somehow things didn't happen. We are working on that now. I just signed for an Audible version of...

Sorry for the long silence…

I've been under the weather since Dec 6, really bad coughing fits, congestion, nastiness, at times too weak to do more than lie abed. Sinus infection, they say. Well, funny thing, now Jane is coughing. I'm slowly recovering, but since the first doctor's appointment I...

A happy holiday had by all….

We had dinner with friends. I'm allergic to turkey, but there was plenty else to eat. What WE had as a follower: made another spaghetti sauce. Here's my personal recipe: Spaghetti Sauce 3 pounds ground beef. 2 tsp salt 1 tsp black pepper 4 tsp dry basil 2 tsp oregano...

It’s been frantic…

We took kitten in to be neutered, and she's fine. Then Shu got sick. We have delayed for years taking him in because he goes wild.... I bought, however, a kind of poncho that zips shut, with velcro ports for a vet to work, and we got him there. He was absolutely...

Her name is Finity.

She's FINALLy gotten to where she will sit still. Sometimes she'll doze off and be quiet for about 15 minutes on end. She has a mouth like you wouldn't believe. Tanner has fallen silent in awe. Tanner hissed at first. But we made a breakthrough the morning we let the...

Kitten

She. We've gotten desperate with Tanner, who has maintained a state of screaming (thank goodness few blows landed) war with Sei and Shu. And any time we go into the kitchen we get Tanner howling on the stairs. If Jane moves at night---he hears, and starts howling....

Winter prep

Scott was kind enough to come over and help us blow the drip-line system out for the winter: we never have had to do that, since our old sprinkler system was below ground. It takes a compressor and a connector to the lines at the water source. I shut down and drained...

Winter is upon us. Hard Freeze Warning; a dusting of snow…

Which means I had to go out and stop the pond pump that sits on the bottom, so water can start layering (warm water on the bottom, earth-warmth, 3 feet down from the to-be-frozen surface. I've sent for another heater, the floating sort, to keep the koi's airhole open....

Milestone in rehab…

Jane and I got to figuring that neither one of us have walked much more than the length of the house or the circuit of the garden path since before last November. Except one foray when we visited Patty, and may have walked 2 city blocks, but were pretty done in. The...
